The following criteria must be fulfilled;

Obesity surgery, or as is its scientific name, bariatric surgery, consists of many options.
For each patient, the appropriate surgical procedure is determined after a variety of interviews and evaluations performed preoperatively. In determining the appropriate surgical method, the eating habits of the person and their expectations after the operation are determinants.

Types of obesity surgery procedures performed in our center:


All types of obesity surgery procedures listed above are performed by laparoscopic way in nearly all cases.

The advantages of laparoscopic surgery are;

  • Small incisions and aesthetically better results.
  • Shorter operation time.
  • Shorter anaesthesia-time and less anesthesia related complaints
  • Less infection
  • Shoret hospital stay.

Our patients undergo extensive medical investigations before surgery and are followed by a dietitian postoperative.
